Serves: 6
  • 1 frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed
  • 2 red organic apples (I used red delicious)
  • half lemon, juice
  • 1 tablespoon of flour, to sprinkle the counter
  • 3 tablespoons of apricot preserves
  • 1 teaspoon Simply Organic vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Simply Organic cinnamon
  • powder sugar for decorating (optional)
  1. Thaw the puff pastry - should take about one hour at room temp.
  2. Prepare a bowl with some water and the lemon juice.
  3. Cut the apples in half, remove the core and cut the apples in paper thin slices.
  4. Leave the peel so it will give the red color to your roses.
  5. Right away, place the sliced apples in the bowl with lemon and water, so that they won't change color.
  6. Microwave the apples in the bowl, for about 3 -5 minutes, to make them slightly softer or you can also simmer the apple slices in the water in a small pan (on the stove).
  7. Unwrap the puff pastry over a clean and lightly floured wooden board.
  8. Using a rolling pin stretch the dough a little, trying to keep it in a rectangular shape.
  9. Cut the dough in 6 strips. These are about 2 in x 9 in (5 cm x 22 cm).
  10. In a bowl, place three tablespoons of apricot preserves, vanilla extract with two tablespoons of water. Microwave for about one minute, so that the preserve will be easier to spread. Spread the preserve on the dough.
  11. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drain the apples.
  12. Place the apples on the dough, as shown in picture above.Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  13. Fold up the bottom part of the dough.
  14. Carefully roll, seal the edge, and place in a greased muffin cup. (This recipe makes 6 so I used a six cup muffin tin}
  15. Do the same for all 6 roses.
  16. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 40-45 minutes, until fully cooked.
  17. I drizzled mine with a bit of honey and powdered sugar.
